Number Recognition in Preschool


Printable number recognition activities for preschool and kindergarten are key components of math instruction. While number recognition worksheets 1-10 pdf provide practice with forming numerals, they don’t take understandings to the next level like snap cubes can!

Fortunately, a little bit of creativity can take a boring preschool number recognition worksheet to the next level. Using snap cubes to build each numeral makes greater connections in children’s brains to help them remember number names and quantities. So don’t let plain preschool number worksheets get you down! Throw in your favorite manipulative instead.

Snap Cube Number Mats

To prepare the snap cube number mats you can print from home: Simply print and laminate. If you don’t want to laminate, I suggest putting the mats into dry erase pockets so that kids can build, trace, and write and you don’t have to worry about printing extra copies.

To use the free printable number mats: Create the number on each mat using snap cubes. Each mat includes space to build the number, a counting activity, a ten frame, and an opportunity to trace the number words.

Providing space to build, trace, and count really gives kids an understanding of quantity and value in addition to the name of the numeral.

Preschool and kindergarten math focuses heavily on recognizing and counting numbers from 0-10 and beyond. This activity goes beyond a number worksheet 1-10, providing hands-on manipulation and fun for students.
